Spelling 'Prometopinae' auctorum is hereby corrected to Prometopiinae Böving & Craighead, 1931

Jelínek & Hájek (2020: 190) provided notes to correct the spelling of the name of the subfamily Prometopiinae. I quote their
paragraph ad verbum, but please see their open access paper for the references:


Two original spellings of the subfamily occur in BÖVING & CRAIGHEAD (1931): Prometopinae in the Key (p. 37); and Prometopiinae
in the Conspectus (p. 74), captions to Plate 35 (p. 156) and Index (p. 346). When reinstituting the subfamily, CLINE et al (2014)
used the variant Prometopinae without any comments, however since then both spellings have been used in the literature: Prometopinae
(DASGUPTA et al. 2015, JELÍNEK & HÁJEK 2018, LEE et al. 2018), Prometopiinae KIREJTSHUK & MANTIČ 2015, GIMMEL & FERRO 2018),
or both (LAWRENCE 2016). However, BOUCHARD et al. (2011) had already pointed out that spelling Prometopinae is incorrect as the stem is
Prometopi-. Therefore following the ICZN (1999: Article the correct spelling of Prometopiinae has to be used.
